Usage: Briefly described (p3-4, p7-12, p15, p22-27, p33) Min age from reference: Early Triassic Max age from reference: Early Triassic Comments: Of Narrabeen Group. Originally named by Goldberry (1972); renamed by Bembrick and Holland (1972). Predominantly quartzose, but also contains abundant ironstone bands, occasional conglomerates and numerous claystone lenses several metres thick. Friable, hence susceptible to erosion. Includes Wentworth Falls Claystone Member.
